What if you couldn't judge a book by its cover?

That was the thought that started it all. After becoming the type of people who picked a book based more on the cover artwork than what was on the blurb (which often was beginning to give too much away anyway, as publishers tried to draw in readers) our founders set about trying to create a way to change that. They never could have imagined that one thought could have grown into what it has.

Our Story

Your subscription changes the world

We believe businesses have a responsibility to use their skills and reach to help the world, as well as make a profit. That's why we support two fantastic charities, One Tree Planted and Book Aid International. Every subscription plants a tree and donates a book, allowing us to support climate change action and education across the world.

Sustainably
sourced

Minimal

Fully
recyclable

Depending on your order, we may need to protect your order with a mailer bag. We are currently working on transitioning from a recycled, biodegradable plastic to a plant-based, compostable material for this.

What our customers say

I adore How Novel!

@livingthroughpages_

“I adore How Novel! From the illustrated clues to notes from your pen pal, it’s absolutely amazing!”

'I read the first book in a day!'

@cerysdavies_

'I've only had 2 books so far but they've been fab! I love letter writing and meeting new people so the pen pal is so fun too. I read the first book in a day and I'm looking forward to getting into genres I wouldn't have considered before!'

'I'm a very happy subscriber!'

@FRANCESCABLACKMORE

Each month I get so excited to choose my books and when they arrive, it’s the best day ever, I’m always so excited to unwrap them, and I have read (and enjoyed) each book so far.

The subscription and my pen-pal have really helped me to rediscover my love of reading.
I’m a very happy subscriber and I wholeheartedly recommend How Novel!"
